Alec Baldwin has responded after George Clooney made shady comments about his accidental fatal shooting.
Clooney called the shooting “insane” and “infuriating” Marc Maron’s WTF podcast.
“There were a lot of people who felt it necessary to contribute some comment to the situation, which really didn’t help the situation at all,” he said. “If your protocol is you checking the gun every time, well, good for you. Good for you.”

The actor said he did not pull the trigger.
“Every single time I’m handed a gun on a set — every time — they hand me a gun, I look at it, I open it, I show it to the person I’m pointing it to, we show it to the crew. Everyone does that. Everybody knows that.”
He added, “Someone put a live bullet in a gun, a bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property. Someone is responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me.”
